|Here we come Ontario! Time to Get Polk'd!|
One year ago, we embarked on a 4 day birthday celebration by visiting 20 plus Ontario Craft brewers and really kicking off an amazing year that has seen my palate and list of friends grow. I could not have envisioned what a year in beer would bring to my life, but the people I have met, the experiences I've had and, oh yes, the beer I've tried have truly transformed my life. It was an eye opening experience and this year, as with everything I do now, it is going to be bigger and better.
An ambitious plan of hitting 50+ breweries on the 2nd Annual Polkapolooza tour will begin on Sunday March 12th with the long drive east to the Nation's capital. Ottawa is home to many fine and growing brewers and it behooves me to start my tour and celebrate this country's 150th birthday at the same time. The route is still in flux but the following breweries are on the list for Day 1 :
|Join me for a pint at one of our stops!|
|It has to be Beau's!|
Yes, yes and yes!
We will be on the road for two days and then return home for a little respite before heading north to revisit one of our trips from last year and to connect with some friends, new and old. But that's the post for another day. Stay tuned as the rest of our tour takes shape and on Thursday we will release the final 30 plus stops. I am pretty sure we will be at a brewery near you sometime that week, so why not join us when we come to your town and celebrate all that our Ontario Craft Brewers have brought into our lives. See you soon!
